+--     Question (Eric Kow): why?

I think it does nothing useful. It was added initially as -1 in:

darcs diff -u -p 'Add support for gui record.'

This patch is much easier to understand than the current code. You can
see that this -1
is meaningless by analyzing the mode of usage of pull_first and pull_firsts.

Of course, over time something might have started depending on it, but
probably not.
